I never really give you an essay with each of my tracks - and this one's no different. This weeks selection can pretty much do all the talking...
Sad but true - sometime's our relationship choices aren't the finest. Just when you thought your love life was amazing. The cracks appear leaving you with very few options. Don't despair though, cause nice guys don't always finish last as Waylon narrates one of the easier options.
I got a gal in Cedartown Georgia I used to have to walk nearly three miles to court her
She never had much just a sharecropper's daughter
But I married her and took her down to New Orleans
Got a little house in the South French Quarter
Got a job tookin' bales load them on steamboat
I give the seven days pay next day unbroke
When she ain't a sleepin' all day she's a primpin'
Every evenin' when the sun goes down she starts a swarmin' on Orleans town
Walkin' into work this mornin' at daybreak
I caught her with the tall long dandy from canebreak
As she walked right by me and she looked right through me
I made up my mind what I'm a gonna do eased in the pawnshop and bought a 22
I watched as the roomclerk gave them a room key
A standin' right outside I could read Room 23
Tonight I'll put her on a train for Georgia
Gonna be a lotta kin folks squallin' and a grieving
Cause that Cedartown gal ain't breathing
